Broker recommendations

I am looking to purchase a yacht from 55 to 85 feet, possibly consider up to 100 feet and wanting to purchase an older yacht to keep the price down then fix it up with a lot of DIY. Who is a boat broker (SURVEYOR) you would recommend that could assist in finding the right boat and give their honest thoughts and opinions on the boat before buying. I am able to look worldwide for the boat.

Broker recommendations

Hello I am a yacht broker and I would advise you to avoid the combination. I have also attended yacht surveying courses but I have done this to help me identify yachts that are sea worthy and those that will create the least problems to future owners. You will need to find an independent surveyor to carry out the survey in the yacht you decide to purchase. Yacht Broker and at the same time yacht surveyor just does not work as there is a clear conflict of interest....
